Hepatic adenomas are benign neoplasms of the liver that occur in several well-defined clinical settings, but principally that of excess hormone exposure. They have a small but poorly characterized risk of malignant degeneration. The clinical presentation and pathological findings were reviewed for all hepatic adenomas resected between January 1, 2003 and(More)
Anterior gradient-2 expression is critical in normal embryonic development. Aberrant expression of anterior gradient-2 in adult tissues has been linked to breast, prostate, esophageal, and pancreatic carcinoma. To define the role of anterior gradient-2 in primary hepatocellular neoplasms, we used tissue microarrays and examined protein expression in typical(More)
We report an adult pancreatic hemangioma diagnosed on pathological specimen review following pylorus preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy for a symptomatic cystic mass in the head of the pancreas. Eight cases of adult pancreatic hemangioma have been reported in literature since 1939. Presenting symptoms, radiographic diagnosis, pathologic characteristics, and(More)

METHODS Review of the English literature with addition of a case report. RESULTS Preoperative(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical and biological significance of syncytial giant cell change of hepatocytes in hepatitis C viral (HCV) infection is poorly understood. AIM To investigate the clinical and histological correlates of giant cell transformation in the setting of HCV mono-infection and co-infection with HCV and HIV. METHODS The prevalence of hepatocyte(More)
We report a case of solitary fibrous tumor of the thyroid gland in a 51-year-old man with pre-existing right recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis from a congenital tracheoesophageal fistula repair as an infant.
